Bio/Research

Dr. Francis specializes in music of the twentieth- and twenty-first centuries and feminist musicology. She received her PhD in musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2010, work for which she received the prestigious Glen Haydon Award.

Francis’ research has been supported by numerous grants, including a General Research Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. She has served as an International Fellow with the American Association of University Women and has three times been recognized by the American Musicological Society, winning the society’s Teaching Fund Award; the Paul A. Pisk Prize; and the Eugene K. Wolf Travel Grant.

Francis is the author of "Teaching Stravinsky: Nadia Boulanger and the Consecration of a Modernist Icon" (Oxford University Press, 2015) and her work has appeared in various journals. She is also a contributing author to Patricia Hall’s "Oxford Handbook of Music Censorship" and to Christopher Moore and Barbara Kelly’s "Authority, Advocacy, Legacy: Music Criticism in France During the Interwar Period".

Francis is Editor-in-Chief for the University of Guelph’s award-winning journal, Critical Voices: "The University of Guelph Book Review Project". She co-edited with Jeanice Brooks an edition of Nadia Boulanger’s published and unpublished writings as well as developing a monograph on modernist composer-performer-conductor Marcelle de Manziarly that explores the links between white, French womanhood, mystical religious beliefs, and musical exoticism during the interwar period.
